It’s hard to believe it’s been more than half a century since Rolex released one of their most iconic watches, but the much-anticipated 60th-anniversary edition of the iconic Cosmograph Daytona timepiece is a timely reminder that it is still one of the most sought after watches out there. Rather than a speculated titanium version, Rolex introduced six variations, showcasing its commitment to timeless design and exceptional craftsmanship.
A Watch to Suit Any Wrist
The new Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona collection comes in six versions: platinum, Everose gold, Oystersteel with a white face, Oystersteel with a black face, Oystersteel and yellow gold with a white face, and Oystersteel and yellow gold with a gold face. The platinum version features an ice blue dial and an oscillating weight made from 18k yellow gold.
Rolex has made subtle yet significant changes to the case and dial markers. The updated design includes restyled hour markers, counter rings, lugs, and case sides. The attention to detail and meticulous design improvements reflect Rolex’s dedication to innovation and refinement.
The 60th anniversary Daytona models boast the latest 2023 movement, the calibre 4131. This new movement comes with updated shock absorbers, reduced energy loss, and enhanced self-winding capabilities, showcasing Rolex’s commitment to excellence in watch engineering. As you’d expect, this is a watch with substance to match the style.
A Transparent Mechanism
For the first time in the Oyster Perpetual collection, all six models feature a transparent sapphire case back, a design element that has been on the wish list of many Rolex enthusiasts. This unique addition allows watch connoisseurs to admire the precision and craftsmanship of the movement within.
Availability and Pricing
The new Rolex Daytona 60th anniversary models will be available in August, with prices ranging from £12,700 to £70,800. These timepieces are an exquisite representation of Rolex’s dedication to timeless design, unparalleled quality, and watchmaking mastery, and will undoubtedly become cherished additions to the collections of watch enthusiasts worldwide.
